With E.J. Henderson lost for the season due to an injury and Erin Henderson suspended four weeks for taking a substance that might have been intended to help him recover from one, the Vikings need another linebacker.
Enter J Leman.
That’s not a typo. Jeremy Jacob Leman, a former Illinois standout, goes by “J”. Not
“Jay” or “Ray” or “Ray-Jay” or “R.J.” or even “J” with a period after it.
The team has signed “J” to the active roster to replace Erin Henderson. They’ve backfilled his position on the practice squad with cornerback DeAndre Wright.
